Gene People was delighted to host the very first Gene People Awards – an opportunity to highlight the incredible efforts of individuals and organisations in improving the lives of people affected by a genetic condition.
The Gene People Awards celebrates the huge positive impact that the genetic condition community has on the 2.4 million people in the UK living with a genetic condition.
The Gene People Awards 2022 focused on all aspects of the genetic condition community during 2020 and 2021. Information on the Gene People Awards 2023 can be found here.
